January Raw Sarasota Social & Potluck Event

Greetings Raw Sarasota,


Happy 2014! Let's make this year our best yet, by far. And let's start by consuming the most nourishing food available.

I'm so grateful that Fogartyville & WSLR, Sarasota's super cool independent radio station, have agreed to host our January Potluck Social event. A big thanks to Arlene Sweeting, founder & station manager of WSLR, for her support of our Raw Sarasota group.

WSLR will be selling organic wine with no sulfites added, for $5/glass, and coconut water.

Please bring a large, vegan, raw & organic dish to share, along with serving utensils. And bring an index card with the list of ingredients, please.

All ingredients should be raw (not pasteurized), organic & vegan (no cheese or dairy of any kind). See link for recipe ideas below.

All food preparation should be done in clean environments using basic hygiene principles.

• Long hair tied back. Short hair in a hat.

• Wash hands before starting and anytime after hands come into contact with any contaminants. 

• Cutting boards for fruits and vegetables should never be used for animal flesh or dairy or eggs. This avoids cross-contamination.

• Sampling should be done with a clean utensil each time. No mouth contact with foods being prepared to share. 

If you RSVP to this event, you have agreed to these sanitary kitchen procedures.

A dish can be simple (like cut, fresh fruit or veggies or a bowl of raw, organic nuts) or raw gourmet.


Donation:
$2 with dish & $10 without dish
Plates, utensils, napkins, cups, & filtered water included

To your vibrant health & happiness!

    Jenna, a suggestion for your consideration. The last time we met at WSLR you and Tess worked very hard serving everyone. Would it not work as well as a buffet and leave you more time to mingle with the attendees .... discussing this amazing life style. Bring a couple of your DVDs too as maybe some of the newer members would like to see how you made the transformation. I thought it was well worth the investment when I bought it several years ago.

      Thank you, Dick. After doing the events buffet-style about 100 times, I realized serving works better. That way, people can spend time socializing instead of waiting in line & we can portion out food so that more people get to sample. I have run out of my own DVDs. Need to order more. Amazon has them in stock. Thank you for your suggestions. And thank you for the organic apple! :)

    I am so sorry I couldn't make it, I had to be in St Pete as we are organizing a co-creative event called EVOLVING Tampa Bay on April 6th, of which all of you are a part. I will share more real soon, with the hopes that we can make more visible the gifts of knowledge that this community has to offer-Much love Shelley

    Is it okay to bring juice?

    January 26, 2014

    • Jenna

      It would have to be a raw juice. Not pasteurized. Fresh-squeezed.

    Looking forward to meeting you, will come with two friends. Can I use honey?

    2 · January 21, 2014

    • Jenna

      Hi, Wanda. Look forward to meeting you, too! Thank you for asking about honey. Better not to since some attendees are strictly vegan. How about coconut palm syrup or dates?

  • Roxanne

    Will homemade pumpkin bread qualify or does it need to be raw?

    1 · January 14, 2014

    • Jenna

      Sounds delicious, Roxanne. But it has to be raw. Scroll down the invitation to see the link with tons of raw recipe ideas.

    I look forward to seeing everyone there!
